LGBTQ t-shirt controversy teaches important lesson: Never apologize

David MenziesMission Specialist

Until recently Jamie Smith, owner of Belle's Smokin' BBQ, was selling T-shirts proclaiming the following: “I support LGBTQ.” 

But alas, the T-shirt’s subsequent copy is causing a controversy for the Kentucky food truck, because it turns that LGBTQ really stands for Liberty, Guns, Bible, Trump, and BBQ.

Jay Kelly thinks a burka is an evening gown.
I think its Jay Kelly who is ‘painfully lonely’.
Have some compassion for logic Jay and sod off with your nonsense.
Who are you working for again?

Where can I get a bunch of those t-shirts????

David Menzies, a man who went into a voting booth in an evening gown during the last federal election. David Menzies supports the LGBTQ but ignored the reality that so many young people who are identified as gay or trans-sexual are painfully lonely, cut-off, and left alone.
He would do well to show some compassion.

In reference to the new coin, I for one consider it to be an insult to all decent Canadians, and will never accept it as legitimate Canadian currency. If I find any of it in my possession I will take it to the bank and demand they exchange it for other.
If we all refuse to accept it, the Mint will have to stop issuing it.We have to fight this sick so called prime minister in any way that we can.

Liza: agree totally!

I wouldn’t argue that point Sheldon. The stuff being pushed in schools and libraries is actually pretty dark, made colourful and cartoonie to get it a pass with young kids.

Andrew: really!!!! Pedophilia is being discussed as part of sexual orientation in California schools,this sick twisted shit shouldn’t be discussed in a school let alone in front of kids!! If you think this is ok maybe it’s time you get some help. There was Rebel awhile back that also mentioned the Prism toolkit was being utilized in our schools,if you are not familiar with it look it up. This crap has no place in our schools that’s why half the kids have failing grades in math!!!Keep your gender bending shit at home along with all the other sick twisted shit socialist’s endorse!!!

…….and if we don’t allow its promotion in schools, the fad portion of the ‘followers’ will give it up and move on.

Now, if that is what worries you Andrew, then we have a problem.
commented 2019-04-30 14:20:30 -0400
Well then,
I think most people would be happy with just not having it rubbed in our faces, and if it is kept out of schools and not presented as an alternative, but as a deviation to the norm, exists but need not be promoted, there would be no problem. The actual numbers of legit gender fluid people is not very big, and if we don’t allow its promotion in schools the fad portion of the ‘followers’ will give it up and move on.

I’m over 50 Andrew and as with many my age, do not care what you do as long as you keep it to yourselves. Don’t worry, we know you are there. We see you, and even deal with you, very occasionally, as store clerks or in other public situations. I dealt with a very helpful older transgendered male now female clerk at a gardening store recently. NO problem, don’t care.

Bullying happens to everyone. PARENTS need to teach their kids how to defend themselves, not necessarily physically, however it is sometimes necessary. The trans sector is getting far more attention than it deserves and it is going to their heads. Just pick a lane, be a decent person and leave underage children alone. Simple. No fuss.

What kind of degenerate, child-molesting, retard pinko shit-stain intrudes on a conservative news/opinion disseminator like THEREBEL and spews irrational, delusional lefty BS and lies like a POS commie jerk-off loser? (phew, that feels better)
I’m getting sick and tired of these assholes and queer-cumquats soiling and stinking up the place with their dirty, disgusting lefty troll nonsense and lies (kinda like my foul language does), and all the space taken up by those of us who foolishly respond to them!
These trolls are anti-people, they’re not human, they’re demonic, crazed, toxic and ugly, pagans and devil worshippers and should be put down by the state like the rabid skunks they are – because of what their evil intent is!
We Canadians should stop virtue-signaling how ‘good’ we are, stop stroking our vanity and ego, roll up our sleeves and just get the damn job done! Forget about banning them, target those evil, degenerate troll scum, et al, and either incarcerate or kill the shitheads!
We should stop trying to be Mr. Niceguywhotolerateseverything to the world, reject the decades-long indoctrination, and take back what’s ours…TAKE BACK WHAT’S OURS!

Dangerous words?
Only if you’re a lefty globalist…or a troll.

“The only thing that creeps me out Andrew, is the way the queer community pushes it onto children. Adults call that sexualizing children and until Justin Trudeau, it was considered a criminal offense. "

It’s not being “pushed”. It’s being acknowledged. Either being outside the hetero/cis/binary dichotomy is fine (as a free society, it legally is), or it’s not. It’s not something that has a neutral position, especially in schools. Self-expression being a fundamental human right has to be at least tacitly acknowledged, and sometimes openly in case of stopping bullying etc.

They go to school to learn to function in the real world, and yes, realize what’s “normal” societal convention. Nobody under 50 cares if you’re gay, that’s just reality, and tacitly accepting that at schools isn’t indoctrination, it’s acknowledging a societal given. It’s very likely gender norms will continue to break down as well – the 20 and 30 somethings truly don’t give a shit about traditional rules (a lot follow that path themselves as human nature, but don’t project that expectation onto others) and they’re the future.

Let me revise that LGBTQ
Liberty, Guns, Bibles & Truthful Questions.
commented 2019-04-30 01:08:58 -0400
Jacques.. when they pushed their queerness in our faces once upon a time we had the right to punch them squarely in the mouth and then they learned not to do that .. what society tolerates it encourages.. some politicians will literally suck a dick for a vote .!!

“Liberty, Guns, Bible, Trump,(or truth as an alternative) and BBQ.
LGBTQ has fresh new meaning.“
I would change the “TQ” to truth questions.. I’m in.!!!!

That’s probably getting close Keith.

Liza, dose that make Trudeau a Bipedoqueer?

Thank you Richard Mann. While I know the I’m not the only one who feels like I do, most just pay lip service and won’t put their money where their mouth is. It’s gratifying to know I,m not alone in my views. I not only support the Rebel but also the Conservative as much as I can afford. This current leftist government has got to go. Those spoilt rotten snowflakes need to read a few books and learn what the real world is all about. I don’t know what makes me more sick, peter pans pixie dust covered world, or the steeple who agree with him.

I’m sure you guys have also seen the proganda tv ad trying to promote and justify the " fruitcake loonie" and all done with our tax dollars. Sick and twisted!!!
commented 2019-04-29 21:49:45 -0400
I think its out already.
Some are calling it the Gay coin. I call it the Queer coin. I have reclaimed the word gay. To me it only means happy and joyful.

When will Turdo be introducing a pedophile penny?

Talks about the BBC documentary which was banned and pulled by the cbc, the title, Transgender Kid’s: Who Knows Best?
This vid came out in 2018 , and was banned on cbc the same year, I believe
Also I want to point out that The response to Elle’s Place is a separate thing on the same video. Elle is a trangender who knows who she is and doesn’t agree with pushing it onto children. I have no problem with her.

Remember when the poof crowd minded their own business and stayed in the closet. Every thing was copacetic. Now not only are they in our face with their disordered lifestyle, but demand the right to indoctrinate our children at a young age with their disgusting unnatural acts. Enough already!
commented 2019-04-29 15:50:53 -0400
Not only that ,these socialist fools are trying to legitimize that pedophilia should be considered also as sexual orientation. No way in hell that kind of thing nor the rest of it should be part of any kid’s school lesson.Sick and twisted!!
commented 2019-04-29 15:46:46 -0400
I will always consider ‘adults’ who think they have a right to mess with children, as predators, whether physically, emotionally. or both. I will also never consider drag queens in libraries reading unicorn tales as anything bur perverted pedophiles, trying to ‘groom’ children for sexual gratification, either their own or for others.

It is being made into a joke and pushed as a fad, a dangerous fad and it ends up minimizing the genuine cases of gender dysphoria of which there are a scant few. It doesn’t belong anywhere near children. If you want to perform as a drag queen, move to Montreal and perform the nightclubs. There is only one reason they are in libraries and its not a good one.

Andrew asks, “Do you think it’s “Liberty” to be swept under the rug because some right wing snowflake find your existence uncomfortable?”

The only thing that creeps me out Andrew, is the way the queer community pushes it onto children. Adults call that sexualizing children and until Justin Trudeau, it was considered a criminal offense.

lol, as if the queer community, the most self absorbed emotionally skewed entitled minority ever, could ever be swept under the rug. Just find your lane and quit your whining and complaining.
Prerequisite covenant: stay the heck away from children.
It is the responsibility of adults to respect and protect their children’s natural development unhindered. BC and Ontario legislators can go pound sand.

Only fake orientations need to be"recognized". The real ones have been around for millennia and don’t need any boot straps to move from perversion to policy.
